Chris Messina on the history of #hashtags and more with #sll from #wv09
I’ve made no secret about my appreciation and affection for the Strange Love Live crew. I’m dead serious when I say it’s the best podcast in Portland, if not the world.
That said, if I have one piece of feedback for them, it’s “Get out of the basement!” And that’s exactly what they’ve begun to do. Now, they’re making regular appearances at local conferences—and getting interviews with some really cool folks.
At this year’s WebVisions, they had the opportunity to catch up with Chris Messina. During the interview Cami Kaos chats with Messina about the evolution of Twitter #hashtags, his affection for comics, and more.
This is a great interview—and there are a ton of other great Strange Love Live interviews from WebVisions, too. If only there were some site to gather all of these videos for future reference.
If only. (Just wait. There’s more news about that coming soon.)
Want more from Messina? Here’s a Silicon Florist interview with him last year, when it was announced he would be joining Vidoop.
